In 2003 Kumasi was declared an International Airport primarily for regional operations with the full complement of Security, Customs and Immigration staff. The airfield is in good condition and receives a daily domestic flight from Accra. Currently there are two national airlines serving the airport: Africa World and Star Bow. The airport has a restaurant, exchange office, ATM, different travel agencies offices and airlines offices. There are no issues regarding the approach, landing, security or communications. There are no storage facilities at the airport but there are about 60 hectares of land around the airport that can be used in case of emergency to install a logistics base. The security of the airport is ensured by the aviation security within Ghana Airport Limited Company. In regards to the electricity, the airport is connected to the national grid and there is also a dedicated line as backup in addition to a generator of 1000 Kva, two generators of 200 Kva each and one of 101 Kva for the LGA (airport lights). A future project consists of increasing the length of the runway.
